01_Santhie 2 Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy crates of fish to process and sell.

01_Santhie 2 Group's story

This group is made up of eight women who are part of the banc villageois that was established in November 2011. They live in the same neighbourhood and are united. They have repaid several loans on time. Their main activity is trade.

Rokhayatou, the group representative, is 34 years old. She is standing on the right in the photo with her hand raised. She is married and mother of six children who attend school.

Rokhayatou processes and sells smoked fish. She gets her supplies at the local port and smokes the fish before selling at the market. She has eight years of experience in this field.

She will purchase 28 crates of fish and salt that she will process and sell by weight with a profit margin. Her profits will be used to pay for personal and family expenses.
